does anyone have experience with Delta Auto Protect? Got an extended warranty quote for my 16 Sport for an additional 5 years and 100k miles, coverage apparently like factory with a $100 deductible. They are not brokers but the primary insurer. Seems a very reasonable quote, give the $9600 I got from a local dealer.

Any help is appreciated

I agree about the price. I was told the dealer product would be a bit under $5k. $9600 would make me re-think picking up the warranty.

I would be interested in purchasing a similar warranty. Please update us on what you find out about them and your experience.

On my old M5 2 years ago I was thinking about using delta as they quoted $3300 for 5 years forgot the mileage while dealers wanted like $8000 minimum. I went with another company autopom which was “identical� to delta in wording, layout, etc just a bit cheaper. Autopom didn't cover anything and always had a way out. I ended up canceling it and getting 30% back. Big waste and headache.

For a brief period of time I got a 14 L405 autobiography last year and went with delta. Guess what? They did the same thing autopom would do and didn't cover anything, everything would be preexisting, or not covered due to some technicality. One time they covered something and then never paid the dealer. The dealer in turn blacklisted me LOL

On my current M5 i paid $8400 through the dealer to buy a warranty through them Lexus Financial (4/48k) no deductible. They've covered everything so far and never give me any issues. The dealers love them too and they are awesome to work with. any lexus or Toyota store can sell this warranty. I bought mine at bmw who also owned a Lexus store next door.

I just picked up a LWB 14 l405 last month and went with Ally Major Guard for 4/48k was around $6000 with 200 deductible. Ally is a bank and backed by GM or is GM can't remember the specifics. Some Land Rover dealers sell this warranty as well at a much higher cost. I got mine through a Nissan dealer. Didn't use it yet but have heard great things from my friends who have it on various higher end bmws (7 series, M cars).

Here's what I realized from my recent adventures. You can buy a junk warranty for cheap but at the end of the day it will never come through and you'll have a false sense of peace. You'll spend more money in the long run with one of these cheap companies. You're better off keeping that money saved up for a big repair.

Expensive warranties seem like a waste of money and they are on certain cars. The M5 has a somewhat high engine failure rate due to defective rod bearings which is documented and all over the forums. A new engine is around $40k. That'too much of a risk for me to take.

These range rovers are great no real fatal flaws. However the timing issues with the older V8s due to plastic guides and the air suspension, control arms which always need replacing, potential supercharger issues, to me it was a no brainer.

I hope this helps someone out

Yes I purchased that warranty for my 2014 RR Sport Supercharged. I had an issue with the stability control mechanism and the local dealership did not accept Delta. I would advise checking with local dealerships to see if they accept Delta.

Not sure why the text comes out in one long post. The mobile app for this forum sucks ass. Seriously one of the worst I’ve ever used.
more annoying is that apostrophes come out as "’" so I have to edit every contraction you type on mobile.

Does anyone have any experience with Car Shield for warranty? They seem like one of the best options and "claim" to be the same as LR factory coverage. $3,600 for additional 4 yr and 50 K miles. $100 deduct. I only have 25 K miles on my ride but coming up on the 4 year mark in few months so need to pull the trigger.

quick update. I did some research and found too many reviews that said don't buy that warranty. it is an inclusionary policy meaning you need to read the coverage items and understand what is not there. I ended up buying an exclusionary policy from Land Rover North Scottsdale. 4 years 75k miles from the date of purchase. I was within 3k miles of going over the 50k limit, so I splurged on this one. Basically covers the entire vehicle except normal wear items. Brake rotors, pads, wipers, etc. Pretty expensive but they came down in price somewhat and I have my peace of mind

I agree with you on the peace of mind issue and the overall coverage is pretty good. Still talking with dealers but so far got them down to around $3600 for the same additional 4 yr/ 75 K. The more I have researched and talked to dealers and friends it seems there are some good and reliable 3rd party/non manufacturer warranty groups out there now that offer pretty much the same coverage so the dealers are losing business and have begun to negotiate. The 3rd party groups are more willing to do monthly payments though, and LR still looking for lump sum payment.
